How to use man in a sentence?

  1. David Blight:

    That is standard Lost Cause ideology circa 1890 to 1910, this man, that language right there, is the standard defense of The Lost Cause built over the period of decades as an ideology explaining confederate defeat, but also as a racial ideology.

  2. Ariana Javidi:

    Like my fellow young feminist women, I recognize that voting for a woman because she's a woman is sexist, just like voting for a man because he's a man is also sexist.

  3. Ted Cruz:

    I'm going to tell you what I really think of Donald Trump. This man is a pathological liar. He doesn't know the difference between truth and lies, he lies practically every word that comes out of his mouth. And...his response is to accuse everybody else of lying.

  4. Henry David Thoreau:

    If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.

  5. Bernard Mandeville:

    The multitude will hardly believe the excessive force of education, and in the difference of modesty between men and women, ascribe that to nature, which is altogether owing to early instruction: Miss is scarce three years old, but she's spoke to every day to hide her leg, and rebuked in good earnest if she shows it; whilst little Master at the same age is bid to take up his coats, and piss like a man.
